In order for conky to display RAM consumption correctly you need to add this line.

build() {

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
sed -i '251s/.*/ curmem = info.memmax - (info.memfree + info.buffers + info.cached + sreclaimable);/' ./src/

And it fully agrees with what free -m shows

I'm getting about 250 M discrepancy over 4 GB of RAM, that is from actual system value. Free reports 4.6 GiB of used memory, conky 1.11.6 reports 4.8 G, htop reports 4.58 G, conky 1.11.5 reports 4.61 G. In any case I'm not sure what can be done on package level as the patch used for 1.11.5 is already included in 1.11.6 which probably means it's a separate issue. From what I can understand it seems that conky 1.11.6 also includes shared memory (because used + shared matches the value displayed in 1.11.6).

Builds well, only RAM usage is displayed badly. Here is an example: conky-lua-nv 1.11.6-2 And here is conky-lua 1.11.5-1 + mem.patch With the naked eye you can see that the latest conky shows twice as much RAM consumption.

Foucault commented on 2020-08-07 12:08

Is the patch still necessary? The original patch was backported from what turned out to be 1.11.6.

Edit: So the patch is already included in 1.11.6. The network reporting issue might still be present but there is no definitive patch for that.

@robson If the PKGBUILD fails to build please include the relevant error. It builds cleanly on my system.

This PKGBUILD has a bug on line 36, should be appended: patch -p1 <../mem.patch.

Edit. I know adding patch -p1 <../ mem.patch to line 36 of this entry will not include it. Then this mem.patch is redundant, because after conky-lua-nv is built, RAM usage is overstated.

@robson. Ok, thanks for the info.

robson commented on 2020-08-05 20:07

You have to rebuild the conky, and adapt it to the new lua.

zuzavo commented on 2020-08-05 19:58

FYI: After the lua upgrade of today, I have needed to install lua53 to run conky correctly.

Conky works very well except for one thing, the download and upload speed are not shown well Can add some patch?

Will this be bumped to include the fix for the negative memory usage soon?
